Grizzlies Force Road Closure
WILSON, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton National Park has closed portions of the road between Moose and Wilson because of the presence of feeding grizzly bears.
Bears are feeding on chokecherry bushes and other plants in the area. Intermittent closures have been in effect since last Friday because people have been parking their vehicles too close to the bears.
Park officials say the road is narrow and lined with vegetation and doesn’t allow for a safe distance between people and the bears. The road closure will remain in effect until bears move out of the area.
The road is closed from the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve access road to the intersection of the Moose-Wilson and Teton Park roads in Moose.
